Spain prepares a new PGI product

Spain is ready to enlist another Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) product, the "Terouel ham (Jamon)" from Aragon, announced Joaquin Olona, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Environment of the Government of Aragon at the inauguration of the Ham and Food Quality Fairs of Terue, according to Carnica magazine.
Such an achievement will help the region to "improve the possibilities of commercialization, increase the profitability of farms and reinforce the productive fabric in rural areas, becoming one of the most powerful tools in the fight against depopulation," said Olona. Only 5% of agricultural and livestock production in Aragon responds to products of different quality and the authorities in the region want to improve this with a grant worth €10 million that will run until 2022. The most recognized Spanish hams are Serrano and Iberico and the prices are running up to thousands of euros depending on the process used in the pig's feeding and the traditional way of curing the Jamon.
